Help! Need Head Count for Hotel Tuesday 7/31 in Memphis/Tunica for C53 Caravan

Please post here if you plan on joining the Texas caravan sometime Tuesday 7/31 and will need a room in Memphis/Tunica that evening. I am working on rooms at a Casino in Tunica for the evening of 7/31 and need a rough room count to get a contract in place. As soon as I get a count of who will be joining us I will post the specifics for the room rates and parking arrangements.

Update: Hotel is confirmed and you can start making reservations!
The Hotel/Casino is the Gold Strike in Tunica. I went with this one based on reviews and they have an attached parking garage. They have the fifth floor (top) of the parking garage for us. I have a block of 30 rooms contracted but they will add more if needed. The hotel has an indoor pool for those looking to unwind somewhere other than the Casino.

Room Rate: $55 a night + Tax 10% & Resort fee $5 for 1 King or 2 Queens for the evening of 7/31.

Reservations: Call in is (888) 245-7829, Please tell them you are with the "Camarovan" when making you reservations. Your credit card will be charged at the time you make your reservation but is refundable if you cancel up to 48 hours prior to arrival.

If you have any problems making reservations or have any questions please let me know.

UPDATED START and ROUTE INFORMATION
Dont shoot me yet! After looking at where everyone is coming from, Houston, San Antonio, Austin and West Texas it looks like the best starting point is Rockwall Texas. There is a Travel Centers of America at I 30 exit 68. This is a good spot to gas up and they have a Starbucks for that little extra kick.

Based on the travel time for the day I think we need to meet up around 10:30 and try to be on the road by 11:00. The first segment will take us to Texarkana where we can stop for lunch around 1:00 - 1:30. There are a number of places to eat. I spotted a cafeteria on the way through that would support a large group and could get us in and out in a reasonable amount of time. The place is called Bryces and has been in business since 1931. Should have a fair selection for everyone including the kids. If this isn't for you there are a number of other places in the immediate area. This would also serve as the meeting point for anyone from the Texarkana area to join up with us.
I would recommend that we gas up here before we head on to Little Rock. Departure time from Texarkana NLT 2:30.

Next stop is Little Rock where we will meet up with Camaro Skooters bud for some video through Little Rock. I would also recommend that if we are picking anyone up in Little Rock they meet us at this location. Meet up time should be approx. 4:30. recommend toppingthe tanks here and then we are set for the final leg into the Gold Strike. Please see link to map for day 1 with mileage markers for all stops.

Link to day 1 Map - https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid...d2419a1e&msa=0

OK here is day 2 - Depart Gold Strike 8:00-8:30am and plan on a gas stop about 2 hours later at I 40 Exit 143 as marked on the map.

Gas up and proceed to Bowling Green where we will stop for lunch and a stroll through the Corvette museum. We should arrive in Bowling Green around 1:30-2:00. Lunch will be on your own, if you want to eat at the cafe' at the museum they have a fairly good selection of lunch items. There are other places to eat in the area if the cafe is not for you.

Lunch, Stroll the museum and gas up. Plan on departing at 3:30.

Continue on to Indy with another gas stop in Indiana and arrive at hotel around 7:30.

This is a draft schedule and is subject to change based on the number of spots that we may need to stop along the way to add to our merry band. I will add the stops as I start to hear back from other groups on where we need to pick them up.

I will post up the details once I get a room count and get a contract in place. I hope to get this done sometime next week based on the responses here.

Please let me know about the timing of this caravan & what route you will take after Memphis as some of our club folks (Music City Camaro Club/Central Kentucky Camaro club) may want to meet up with you at some point. I suspect some of our group will travel on Wed & some on Th so I need to be able to coordinate destinations for them to fall into various caravans. Thanks in advance.

Right now it looks like we will be heading out Wednesday morning on I-40 to Nashville and then taking I-65 North up thru Bowling Green and then Indy. Not sure on the departure time from Memphis yet, but will keep you posted as times firm up.

I just sent out a round of PM's to folks that signed up in the teaxas caravan thread but have not signed up for a room to see if I can nail down the count. I expect to talk with the sales manager tomorrow afternoon to settle on a room count and get the contract in place. I should have the specifcs by the end of the week.
